How to prepare vegan green bean soup?
We start with a strong vegetable broth. We take the vegetables except the beans and potatoes and fry them in water. We add more water until the vegetables are slightly brown. That’s how we get the taste right. Then we pour the vegetables into water. Here you can already recognize the typical vegetable broth color, slightly yellowish brownish. Now we add the beans and potatoes and let it boil until they are soft and cooked through.
What if I do not have time to cook a strong vegetable broth for the vegan green bean soup?
You can also use store bought vegetable broth. However, it depends on the brand as to how it will taste. You can also, if the vegetable broth for the vegan green bean soup is not strong enough, just reduce the broth under heat or season it more.
Can I use frozen, fresh or canned green beans?
I like to use fresh or frozen green beans. These give the best taste in my opinion and you can cook them the way you like them best. Fresh and frozen beans take about 10-15 minutes, depending on how soft or firm you want them to be. If you want to use fresh green beans, you can also blanch them briefly. So the great green color remains. And with fresh beans you have to do one more step, wash and cut them.
You are now under time pressure. If you do not have a lot of time and still want to cook this delicious soup, then of course you can go back to canned green beans. Please note that the beans are heated only for 2-3 minutes, as they are already cooked
Can I freeze the vegan green bean soup?
The green bean soup is even great for freezing. We often have something left and then freeze it. Please make sure that the soup is cooled down before putting it in the freezer.
Can I keep the vegan green bean soup in the fridge?
If you want to eat the soup within a few days, I recommend keeping the soup in the fridge.
What can I serve with the green bean soup?
In my hometown you eat plum cake and green bean soup together. Are you familiar with this combination? If not, you should definitely try it. If you do not know this combination, what do you serve usually with such a soup? I would love to read from you below. However, if we do not have time to make a plum cake, I will whip up a quick pancake dough and add some diced plums.
